  • After 20 years of running river trips in the US and internationally I fell in love with the Middle Fork of the Salmon River and decided to become an outfitter here so in 2007 purchased a river company called Middle Fork River Expeditions. Best decision I ever made. If you are looking for an outfitter to take you visit the Middle Fork Outfitters Association website and use the calendar function to find an outfitter that fits your travel dates. Most trips are 6 days and you need 8 days total door to door. It is considered the best river trip in the world for good reason as it has fun rapids, hot springs, incredible scenery and world class fishing as well. It is also known to have the best group of high quality river outfitters anywhere. We are all part of the Middle Fork Outfitters Association mentioned above.
